When I mentioned this email exchange to a co-worker who has adopted several Golden Retrievers from a rescue, he said "Oh, a Dog Nazi". I have never heard of such but I was astounded with an email I received back from an inquiry about adopting a puppy.
A little amused (or maybe confused) I related the email to my husband, who blew his stack. He said, of all people to get that email, not my wife who carries her Cocker down the stairs and up again to go to the potty when he is feeling a little weak. Not my wife who spent $6,000 to save her Cocker Spaniel's legs and back. My wife who lifts her dogs up and on to the beds every night, and who can't go into another room with her "baby" dog with her. Who has a chihuahua who 'spoons' her in bed. He laughed and said, I really don't understand people. But at least now I know there are "Dog Nazi's" out there.
I am totally interested in (Blank). I have a fenced backyard, my mom is home all day with our pets. I have one small feisty 7 yr old Chihuahua and a 10 year old cocker, with lots of medical problems, hips, legs, eyes and back. He does not move too much, but is my “baby” dog. I have a 14 year old and he is very gentle and caring with our dogs.
If you are adopting the dog, YOU need to be the one who does the training of the puppy and you are gone all day to work. I don't know if your Mom wants another dog to have to work with.
I am not comfortable with people adopting pups and having someone else raise them all day.
Sorry I couldn't help you,

I understand your concerns. And I do train my own dogs, thank you. I was just mentioning that my mom lives with me to tell you that I have someone that is home all day and the pets are not alone during the day.
I am with my animals when I am not at work.
Thank you for answering my email
(and after thinking about why I had been denied, my second response)
I am not sure this makes a difference, but I am a 50 year old woman, my mom lives with me and my husband and son. I started thinking when I said “my mom lives with me”, that you might think I was younger ;)
I am sorry but I need to stick with my original decision.
